Hi my fellow anglers.

I would like to request the experienced anglers on IA to help me with spoons.
I recently bought a few spoons from Tackledirect and i would like to know how to use them properly.

I fish from the shore and what would be the best tactics to fish with them like how to cast (i mean the distance they need to be cast) and retrieve.

I tried them a few times without any success, i switched backed to cut bait but i dont want give up on them. I have read that spoons have great potential and i have never felt the excitement of catching fish on lures.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hey Kashaif,

I got some good advice for you.

keep on casting & keep on retreiving.

The fish have just started coming towards the coast. I'm sure you will get some hits soon.

regards,
Keyur

Hi kashaif, Spoons are great lures and highly effective when used right. Spend some time studying the water you fish. Look for signs of bigger fish feeding or schools of small bait fish along the edges and cast your spoon in these areas. You'll get more hits. Try figuring out where the fish are rather than just casting out into open water.
Let us know how you do.

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.

If you have got into spinning my advice would be get some floating poppers tat will give you practice without loosing them,besides the kingfish must be all lined up to enter the shallows.Tight Lines.

Kashaif, we get Rapala skitter pops, Halco roosta poppers & Williamson poppers in Dubai. However, I use Rapala poppers (from Europe) & Tsunami poppers from USA, as the sizes & colours of poppers here are limited.

Keep trying your spoons, vary the retreive speeds & retreive style, you will surely get a hit sooner or later. Probably 2 weeks from now, the fish will be found in abundance. I have already been getting decent stuff from shore.

regards,
Keyur
